| I don't like touchpads and the Surface Pro 2's was driving me mad, so I
| searched for a 2 in 1 with a track point or similar, and found the
| Toshiba z20t (it does have a touchpad too, if you like).
| The model I got (for �300 on ebay) is the Z20t-B-113. As far as I can
| say everything works out of the box: Touchscreen, stylus, keyboard
| (except the FN special keys), touchpad (which I deactivated), track
| point, suspend and hibernate (from tde powersave menu).
| The machine uses an Atmel touchscreen (that can be controled with
| xrandr) and a Wacom pen digitizer (which can be controled with
| xsetwacom).

Fascinating -- I'd go for one forthwith were my entire experimental budget 
not tied up in the Planet Computers Gemini, which I am to receive Real 
Soon Now. As we wait for it to ship, the rumors are getting crazier and 
crazier; the one thing that I know it lacks (that I wish it had) is some 
sort of Trackpoint-like pointer control; instead, it's pure touchscreen, 
which means I'll be developing new skills in keyboard navigation (thanks 
in part to answers gotten here). 

If it doesn't work out as I hope, I'll be in the market for the Toshiba.
